My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #660: New Projects Coming Together

04-03-2012 11:50 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Yesterday was one of those days where everything was falling into place. I had a lot of odds and ends to finish up with, but the satisfaction of seeing those project get done was really motivating and it kept me pushing to do more. I love when that happens. I finally got the cheese tray photographed. In speaking with my editor, I also found out that I still had several weeks until it was due to be in New Jersey at the magazine. After running right on deadline since last fall, it was a s...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #654: Two New Projects!

03-28-2012 10:09 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 14 comments »

Well, I finally feel like I actually accomplished something! While part of me knows that I work just about every day, sometimes I feel that unless I see something tangible at the end of the day, I didn’t get anything done. It seems like forever since I was able to present a new project, and even though I know it hasn’t been that long, with all the other things that have been going on lately, I feel like I have been slagging lately. Yesterday was a good day. Finally, a day ...

Roy's Mystery Mallet #3: Dressed and Ready for Work

03-12-2012 11:05 PM by pastorglen | 5 comments »

As promised, here’s the final outcome of Roy Underhill’s Mystery Mallet. As you can see, I shaped the handle a little differently than they showed in the magazine. I like the squared-off handle better. I also stained the head one color and then applied several coats of tung oil to the whole thing. Thanks, again, to venues like LJ, Roy Underhill, and the folks over at Popular Woodworking. My woodworking is better because of you all.

Lumber Scores! #3: Log to Lumber - Milling small Ash logs

03-12-2012 12:20 AM by SalvageCraft | 14 comments »

Last year I got a pile of Ash logs from the city when they were taking down beetle infested trees in my neighborhood.I’ve been using bits of it here and there for small projects and barbecues.I’m doing a small table for my lady and have taken photos of my process for milling firewood sized chunks into thin slats for a rustic tabletop. Here be the log:I use the jointer to square two sides. All I need is two flat and square reference surfaces to register against the fence and ta...

Dear Saint Roy, I like you a lot more this week. Lots. Sincerely, Mallet Boy in PA ———————If you haven’t gotten a copy of the April 2012 issue of Popular Woodworking, do it today. That’s where this insanity all got started. But I’m telling you, I never could have launched into this if it weren’t for that article. They do a great job. Check them out. The second attempt with the hardwood turned out to be much ...

Dafting table

02-10-2012 03:09 AM by DonR | 1 comment »

a week ago I won a Hamilton Drafting table in a surplus auction from my local university, since then I have been sanding my hands off to re finish it. The biggest challenge has been the drawing surface. it had been used in a machine shop and had many straight line cuts in it as well as a number of pits and chips from machined metal parts. I have now done three applications of joint compound to fill these cuts and dips and am happy with the surface. I have sanded it down to a 320 grit and will...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #583: A Day Without Communication - Making Lemonade from Lemons

01-15-2012 01:21 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

So you all thought I took the day off? I suppose that you could say that, although it wasn’t a choice of mine. It seems that the black cat must have really put her spell on my on Friday the 13th after all. Around 8pm Friday night the unthinkable happened – my internet went down. All of a sudden, I was getting the dreaded “server not found” error on my screen. When Keith checked his computer, it was the same thing. We fiddled with our modem a while and then I de...

Building the shop #5: Floor Plan for Shop - just a guess-timate

12-21-2011 07:42 AM by MrMeasureTwice | 10 comments »

Quick post here – 0400 comes awfully early… Here is my rough drawing of how I will lay out my shop. NOTES: ShopVac will be under the bench ShopSmith is questionable at this point, but it’s the only jointer I have right now, so it stays for now Brown rectangles with thick black border are workbenches Restricted area is immovable, lost space The purple area is the lazy susan that will hold the 4 tools as noted If you’ve got ideas, recommendations or ...
